Someone booked a ticket for me via a third-party company. Is there a way for the website to know I've missed the flight?

I guess my real question is: does anyone but the airline know I've missed the flight? Would the airline alert the booking company in any way?

    Do you mean the 3rd party booking company knowing if you missed the flight - why would they care? Or do you mean the person who made the booking knowing if you missed the flight they had (presumably) paid for?

  • Well, it might end up in the PNR, so "yes". Or they might suspect you missed it and apply for a refund of fees.

  • @npl sorry, but what is the PNR?

  • @petim602 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passenger_name_record At least the German Wikipedia also lists "no shows" as information which is stored in the PNR

The Passenger Name Record lists all kind of information about your flight, and is also accessible to a travel agent. One kind of information stored there is whether flights have been taken. So, yes, the travel agent most likely can check whether you have taken a flight.

  • @TheZealot See the comment of the OP above: "I mean the 3rd party booking company knowing if I missed the flight." What else would a "booking company" be? In any case, the friend might equally learn this from the travel agent.
